You will often hear the term "judicial activism" tossed about by political types and law professors as a bomb in the continuing argument over the constitutionality of this or that liberal or conservative cause — intent of the framers and all that. The notions of constitutionality, liberalism and conservatism are not really part of the definition of judicial activism. The term refers to a judge ignoring the letter of the law, substituting it with his or her own law, or when a lower court commits such sleight of hand or just makes a mistake and issues an incorrect ruling. You have a right to appeal such decisions to a higher authority. In Nebraska, that means an appeal to the Nebraska Court of Appeals and/or the Nebraska Supreme Court.

At Higgins Law, we have experience in family law cases in both the Nebraska Court of Appeals and Nebraska Supreme Court.

When a case ends in an unsatisfactory resolution, an individual might be able to appeal the decision. Based on the facts of the case and circumstances that led to the decision, it is possible to re-examine the evidence and procedural errors of your previous representation.
